Parent help for getting kids to read with stamina!


Dear All,

With all this remote learning, it is critical that everyone takes the time to just sit down and read. It's something that doesn't come easy in our modern world of internet and fast-paced stimuli.

We really need to teach our children what reading "looks" like so they can build reading stamina.

Please look at the video series offered for free below.

They are an investment of time that will have a long term pay-off.

Free online books can be found at the NY Public Library website: https://www.nypl.org/

Wishing everone happy reading adventures!

Warm regards,

Dr. Evelyn J. Lolis :)

In this new series, Gail Boushey reads with your students, and helps them learn to read independently at home for 20 to 30 minutes at a time by teaching or reintroducing them to

  • the behaviors of a reader;

  • why it is important to read at home;

  • 3 Ways to Read a Book;

  • how to Check for Understanding;

  • how to track stamina;

  • how to use a word collector;

  • how to keep track of language they love that may be used in their writing; and

  • correspond with you, their teacher, by taking a photo of their stamina chart and sharing what they are reading.

Check out the parent information here and the student videos here.
